Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) issued the following statement on President Biden’s announcement to withdraw all remaining U.S. troops from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021.

“After nearly 20 years, it is time to bring America’s troops home once and for all. I speak for a grateful nation when I say we will never forget the sacrifices our military servicemen and women and their families made to bravely protect our nation in the face of terrorism. As we move forward, we need to do everything possible to recoup American assets and resources from the region. We must promote greater cooperation between our partners in the Middle East to support the Afghan government and their people.”
